    How to Add Native RAW Image Format Support to Windows 10


    Do you like taking pictures in Raw image formats and wish that the Raw files from your camera were natively supported by Windows 10?

    Good news! Targeting 19H1, Microsoft has been working hard to release a new store-delivered Raw codec package that dramatically improves native raw file format support in Windows 10.

    The Raw Image Extension adds native viewing support for images captured in raw file formats produced by many mid- to high-end digital cameras. By installing the package, you will be able to view thumbnails and metadata of supported raw file formats right in Windows File Explorer or view images in the Photos app. The current version of the extension supports a long list of cameras, however some Raw formats like .CR3, and .GPR are not currently supported at this time.

    Microsoft has also created a 19H1 Bug Bash quest for directions on how to use Raw Image Extension (Beta). If you are running Build 18323 or later, click on this link to open the quest in Feedback Hub.

    Prerequisites:
    • Minimum Windows 10 build 18323.
    • (Optional) An updated Photos app (version 2019.18114.17060.0) is available to Selfhosters in Canary ring. This version of the app adds file associations for additional raw image formats that are supported by the new codec package.
    Known issues
    • Exposing camera properties stored as EXIF/XMP metadata is not currently working for some raw image formats.
    • File Explorer hangs when the view state is changed to “Details Pane” and a raw file that activates the new raw codec package is selected.
    • Opening some raw images in Photos app using the new store-delivered raw codec pack gets stuck at low resolution thumbnail image.
    This tutorial will show you how to add native RAW image format support for your account in Windows 10.

    Camera codec pack on windows 10 to view RAW files

    Hi Marjan,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Ideally, the RAW images created by the cameras need their own software or extensions to work on Windows 10. The Raw Image Extension adds native viewing support for images captured in raw file formats produced by many mid- to high-end digital
    cameras. By installing the package, you will be able to view thumbnails and metadata of supported raw file formats right in Windows File Explorer or view images in the Photos app. You may install the
    Raw Image Extension from the Microsoft
    Store and see if it helps.



    If the issue persists, I suggest you to get in touch with the Nikon support and see if they can help you with the software or plugin to access RAW files.



    Regards,

    raw file photo storage

    Raw Image Extension

    Thanks for your interest in the Raw Image Extension. You can acquire the extension to install on your devices but Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version number 1903) is required to install the extension. The Raw Image Extension adds native viewing support for
    images captured in raw file formats produced by many mid- to high-end digital cameras. By installing the package, you will be able to view thumbnails and metadata of supported raw file formats right in Windows File Explorer or view images in the Photos app.
    The current version of the extension supports a long list of cameras, however some Raw formats like .CR3 and .GPR are not currently supported. This package is made possible thanks to libraw open source project (LibRaw | raw image decoder). Check out LibRaw 0.19 supported cameras | LibRaw
    for a list of supported cameras. Libraw library is licensed under COMMON DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION LICENSE Version 1.0 (CDDL-1.0) PLEASE NOTE – the Raw codec delivered by this extension requires changes to Windows to run. Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version
    number 1903) or later is required. If you can’t install the extension, your device is running a version of Windows that does not meet the minimum Windows build number required to run the extension. Please consider upgrading your device to the latest version
    of Windows to install the extension. PLEASE NOTE – the extension is NOT an app – you can’t interact directly with it. It installs an OS codec plugin used by Windows apps including File Explorer and Photos to decode raw images. Please use File Explorer to view
    thumbnails or Photos app to view your raw images from supported cameras after installing the extension.

  5. A7iii raw file support

    Hi Colin CHRF,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    Appreciate your efforts to work on this issue.

    1. Do you have the Microsoft Camera codec pack installed on the PC?
    2. Have you installed all pending updates on the computer?

    I would like to let you know that Microsoft is working hard to release a new store-delivered raw codec package that dramatically improves native raw file format support in Windows.

    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18323 | Windows Experience Blog

    By downloading the new Raw Image Extension (Beta) package from the store, you can now view image thumbnails, previews, and camera metadata of previously unsupported raw files right in File Explorer. You can also view your raw images at full resolution
    in apps such as Photos or any other Windows app that uses Windows Imaging Component framework to decode raw images.

    For more information, you can also refer the replies from this Adobe website:
